underdeveloped characters? next time, use self-raising flour and leave them in the oven for an extra three minutes
Saturday morning I wake up to a vibrating buzz that is approximately ten times louder than what my phone has ever managed to achieve, and it’s strong enough that my entire bed seems to be shaking as well. I reach for my phone as I rub my eyes blearily, but it’s quite, no missed calls or texts or ringing alarms. Instead, I finally notice that it’s absolutely sweltering in my room and I’m laying a pool of my own sweat because there’s a very happy space heater pressed up against my left side underneath the blankets. I peel up the edge of my comforter and am greeted by a pair of slitted lavender eyes that look far too lively for me at 7:30 on a Saturday morning. I glare at him.
So the draft of my dragon short story is finished, thank god.
it is also 18 pages long, which is unfortunately 3 over the workshop limit, so now it’s time to chop, chop, chop (*cries*)
However, i reeeeally like this story and enjoyed writing it so much that i’m thinking about continuing it in the future, so i’ll be saving an uncut copy
i guess i’ll post the second half tonight, and lucky you, you get the uncut version! (i’ll probably eventually be posting the entire final workshop version as well once it’s finished)
and if this is all completely news to you, you can check out Part 1 here
Wait are you in Delaware? I go to OWU!Really? That’s so cool! No, i was nearby to see Mindy, but I go to Denison, which is like an hour away. But I go through Delaware whenever i go home, and i’ll actually be at OWU a couple times next semester for track meets!
